What’s the most important aspect of mentoring?
I believe that an important goal of mentoring is to develop the future leaders for your company. To do this, it is important to invest in and sincerely care about your mentee’s professional success and personal well-being and to listen with a patient, thoughtful, compassionate ear in order to provide constructive advice and support.
